Beetroot is of exceptional nutritional value; especially the greens, which are rich in calcium, iron and vitamins A and C. Beetroots are an excellent source of folic acid and a very good source of fibre, manganese and potassium. It also been used for medicinal purposes primarily for disorders of the liver as they help to stimulate the liver’s detoxification processes. It is rich in fibre, exerting favourable effects on bowel function, which may assist in preventing constipation and help to lower cholesterol levels too. No wonder each time I had beetroots, I will definitely head to toilet for sure.

5 Elements Soup
Feeling so warmth and blessed with this soup. The soup is filled with china dry white shiitake mushroom, burdock root, radish, radish leaves, carrot, snow lotus seed, bamboo fungus, Chinese golden fungus and red dates. With so many elements in it, the soup is definitely not to waste. The broth was light and yet flavourful in taste.

Baked Tomato on Greens
Elemen uses Europe Tomato which explains the size of the tomato. It was prepared with white asparagus, pine seeds, capsicum, parsnip, black truffle and baby spinach. Although there are so many ingredients in it, the taste was kinda bland for me except the tint of truffle taste in it.

Sunshine Riceberry
My first try on Sunshine riceberry which has a similar texture as brown rice. Elemen uses Thailand Riceberry and topped with Australia zucchini, pumpkin , corn and edible flowers. We were amazed with the elegant presentation. Although the taste of the riceberry was not significant, the ingredients enhanced the texture of the dish. Feeling healthy after having this.

Gelato in Coconut
Lastly, the menu ended with a sweet note. Avocado coconut gelato with peach gum served in coconut. At the end of the dessert, you can dig the coconut flesh out to enjoy as well. It was truly a good ending for the menu. I wish they can consider it as a permanent dessert in their menu.
